This next-generation hardware and software advances the connectivity and entertainment of the Discovery. The 10” high-definition touchscreen fitted to HSE and HSE Luxury models, enables fast, sleek and direct connectivity and information.16
TOUCH PRO™ FEATURES
When you select Touch Pro, you have other services, technologies and applications to give you and passengers the very highest level in connectivity and convenience. Features include InControl Apps, Remote & Protect and Connected Navigation, including Wi-Fi.16
As part of Touch Pro, Connected Navigation includes Wi-Fi Hotspot18 and a number of other features including real‑time traffic information, and street level images. With the Route Planner smartphone app, you can send destinations straight from your phone to the car, and also access pedestrian or public transportation directions to your destination once you’ve parked.
LAND ROVER INCONTROL® REMOTE & PROTECT™
With the Land Rover InControl Remote & Protect, the emergency services will be automatically notified if you’re in an accident where the airbags have been deployed, or you can call them manually via an in-car button. You can also summon a Land Rover Optimized Assistance operator should you need technical assistance. With access to InControl Remote, you can view your vehicle status and opt into journey tracking to make travel expenses that much easier.
REAR SEAT ENTERTAINMENT
The Optional Rear Seat Entertainment system provides individual 8" screens built in to each winged headrest. WhiteFire™ digital wireless headphones, HDMI, Mobile Hi-Definition Link and USB connections are included.
There are three audio systems from which to choose. The Land Rover System has 10 speakers. We’ve also partnered with Meridian™, to develop two advanced systems for the Discovery. The 380W version has 10 speakers and the 825W Surround Sound system has 16 speakers and a subwoofer.
MERIDIAN™ SOUND SYSTEM
Great definition, crystal clear highs and full, deep bass — delivered through the careful arrangement of 10 speakers and a dual-channel subwoofer.
MERIDIAN™ SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM
All the fullness and clarity of a live performance delivered through an arrangement of 14 front, side and rear speakers and a dual-channel subwoofer — seamlessly brought together using Trifield™ technology. Exclusive to Meridian, Trifield perfectly blends the center and surround channels with left and right channels ensuring an optimum, consistent sound experience for each passenger.
8-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
All engines in the Discovery are paired with the advanced electronically controlled ZF 8-speed Automatic Transmission, which has been tuned by Land Rover to combine smooth shifting with exceptionally rapid response. With eight closely spaced ratios, gear changes are almost imperceptible.
The Discovery has been designed to deliver a confident, comfortable and engaging driving experience to make the miles go by virtually unnoticed. The sublime ride quality is heightened by Electronic Power Assisted Steering, while Corner Brake Control helps to maintain stability when braking on corners by modulating the driver's generated brake pressure.<sup>1</sup>
DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL
Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) monitors the vehicle’s dynamic behavior and is designed to intervene if it determines the vehicle is not responding to the driver’s inputs. It helps ensure the Discovery delivers a connected, balanced and sure-footed drive. One that you will relish both on- and off-road.<sup>1</sup>
Primarily constructed from aluminum components, the suspension concept is fully independent, with a wide-spaced double wishbone design at the front and an advanced multi-link layout at the rear.
The Discovery enjoys greater efficiencies thanks to such innovations as Intelligent Stop/Start technology, use of lightweight materials and improved aerodynamics. Vehicles equipped with electronic air suspension also benefit from speed lowering where the vehicle automatically lowers to reduce drag when cruising.
ALL-TERRAIN PROGRESS CONTROL
All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) is an optional system that assists drivers to set and maintain a steady speed in challenging conditions. Operating like a low‑speed cruise control system, it helps to maintain full concentration on steering and finding a path through obstacles.1
TERRAIN RESPONSE® 2
Our unique Terrain Response systems help the driver to optimize the vehicle’s engine, transmission, center differential and chassis systems to match the demands of the terrain, by selecting one of the easily identifiable driving modes. The optional Terrain Response 2 system enhances this by monitoring driving conditions and automatically selecting the correct driving mode for specific conditions.1
With an additional set of lower gears, this system gives you precise speed and control in the most demanding of instances. The heart of the two-speed transfer case is the electronic center differential that offers a 50:50 torque split between front and rear axles with the ability to preemptively lock the differential before slip commences.
ELECTRONIC AIR SUSPENSION
A competent, composed drive is completed by a four‑corner electronic air suspension system, which provides exceptional wheel articulation and poise. Capable of taking on tough situations, this system keeps the Discovery composed no matter how rough the terrain. For unprecedented ride quality, it switches heights seamlessly when necessary.
With a towing capacity of up to 8,201 lbs, the Discovery has impressive capabilities.
Lane Keep Assist is designed to detect when your vehicle is unintentionally drifting out of your lane, and to gently steer you back. Driver Condition Monitor detects if you’re starting to feel drowsy and gives you an early warning when you need to take a break.1
When you’re cruising on the motorway or travelling in slow-moving traffic, this system will keep your vehicle a safe distance from the one in front should it slow or stop, without the need to use the pedals. When the vehicle speeds up again so does Discovery.
If a potential collision is detected between speeds of 3-50 mph, the Autonomous Emergency Braking system displays a forward collision warning, giving you time to take action. If a collision is still anticipated and you have taken no action, the system is designed to apply the brakes to help reduce the severity of the possible impact.1
BLIND SPOT ASSIST WITH REVERSE TRAFFIC DETECTION
If your vehicle detects another car in your blind spot when you begin to change lanes, Blind Spot Assist applies an appropriate amount of steering torque to help prevent collision with the approaching vehicle. Using the same technology, Reverse Traffic Detection warns you of vehicles, pedestrians or other hazards approaching from either side of your vehicle while reversing.
This system makes parallel and perpendicular parking easier by steering your vehicle into a suitable space. Just select the appropriate gear and control the vehicle’s speed, brake and accelerator pedals. Park Assist will also steer you out of a space, taking the stress out of parking through on-screen guidance.1
Providing a 360° exterior view via the touchscreen, this helps with various maneuvers from parking by a curb, to getting in and out of tight spaces with greater ease. You’ll feel more confident negotiating even the trickiest of spaces and situations.1
COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE
Activity Key is an optional feature that makes living life to the fullest more convenient. You can wear the Activity Key and use it to lock or unlock your Land Rover vehicle if you prefer not to carry a key fob. The wristband is robust and fully waterproof, allowing you to enjoy a range of activities.
The Discovery features optional third-row seats with optional Intelligent Seat Fold, which allows you to configure the second- and third-row seating using switches in the cargo area or on the main touchscreen.
You can look forward to a comfortable driving experience all year round with the option of heated seats or heated and cooled seats. Dependent on your model selection, both the driver and passenger can set their preferred temperature independently via the touchscreen.
POWERED GESTURE TAILGATE
Powered gesture tailgate allows you to operate the tailgate hands-free outside the vehicle without needing to physically touch your vehicle or the smart key. When the smart key is detected, the feature can be operated by a kicking gesture underneath the rear corner of the vehicle using sensors located on either side of the bumper. A powered inner tailgate is also available, which acts as a seating or loading platform, or an upright luggage retainer.
